    2018 FIFA World Cup

    Yeah, Mbappé is already great. So great at this age that he may have the potential to become one of the best of all-time. He is at the very least heir-apparent to the likes of Ronaldo and Messi. This French team was so fun to watch this tournament, and it’s scary to think of the damage they could do in the future with them being so great so young.

    MLB changes 2018?

    I LOVE that the Home Run Derby participants are in their primary uniforms. I’ve never been that big a fan of the special uniforms at all and I think this looks a lot better. I hope this becomes a long-standing tradition. That’s just me though.

    Man, Croatia has guts. I really didn’t think they’d have it in the tank to pull it off today, but they proved me wrong. It’s going to be tough to count them out Sunday. With both France and Croatia getting where they are with grit, I think the Final is going to be a classic. I’m excited!

    If the numbers on the purple were white, that’d be just about perfect. That’s definitely the strongest uniform of the three in my eyes. The gold still looks off though. I guess I just don’t like the way the colors are ordered on the sleeve and arm trim. Something about it just doesn’t look right.

    Los Angeles Lakers 2018-19 Uniform Discussion

    Yeah I totally know what you mean, and I didn’t expect it to come out exactly the same, but this still could’ve come out better than it did anyways. For the sake of suggesting a solution, one way they could have gotten around that would be to make the collar and arm stripe two colors instead of three (I’m thinking purple/white on gold, gold/white on purple, gold/purple on white), then do a simple bold outline instead of drop shadow on the numbers. Then it’s doing it’s own thing while still nodding to showtime, but also a much cleaner and less “off” nod too. That all said, I wish teams would still go completely back to old looks anyways and merely tweak little details here and there when needed (example: switch back to showtime as-is except for updating the wordmark). But I do get why they don’t, and at the same time believe teams can try a bit harder than they do when “nodding” to said throwbacks.

    Something just about it. The collar and arm stripes don’t work very well in that color order on the golds. Should be white-purple-white. Gold-purple-white looks muddled. The drop shadow isn’t pronounced enough, it should be a tad bolder and at the original angle. And I don’t like the look of gold numbers on the purple at all for them. Those should be white with gold drop shadow. So far as I can see with what we’ve got, it’s just okay. Decent effort, the ideas was there, just really not as well executed as it should’ve been. Reminds me a lot of the Knicks recent uniform changes; given the inspiration, they knew better.

    Thats beautiful. I still prefer the gold jersey to have purple numbers, but this is still sweet.

    This is my favorite too. It’s strength was balancing out the Lakers’ gold uniforms really well. Not that Laker games aren’t visually appealing now, but the color distribution back then from uniforms to court was even better.
  9. So glad to see this back! Great work yet again!

    2018 MLB Season

    Watching Dodgers/Angels tonight and it’s had me thinking. You know, I’m a baseball throwback in a 90’s kid’s body and have always wished I could’ve watched Mickey Mantle or Willie Mays play. But then I watch Mike Trout, and it’s as if that wish came true. He’s that great.

    2018 FIFA World Cup

    I really wonder if Croatia is gonna be gassed out for the semifinal. Back-to-back games ending on penalty kicks is a lot of miles. We’ll see how that effects them. In any case, this is going to be a great final four. It’s been a fantastic World Cup and these matchups are set up to keep it fantastic. And really any final possibility sounds fun, too.

    I’d be ecstatic if it were anything like these. Love the drop shadow and I always liked the purple numbers better.

    With Brazil’s elimination, none of 2014’s semifinalists will be playing in this year’s semifinals. Fresh slate!

    2018/19 Soccer Kits

    I actually really like the design of these. I just hate the look of the sponsor is all.

    2018 FIFA World Cup Kits

    Even in mono red, England is one of the best looking teams in the world. The only thing I don’t like about their current kits, however, is that the championship star is the same color as the kit and gets lost. Why isn’t that a contrasting color? I’d be owning the heck out of that if I were England. I mean of course it doesn’t detract from how classy they look, but that has bugged me a little.
